A 1957 CBS Television Network special called "The Edsel Show". With special guests Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Rosemary Clooney. This is a good quality kinescope of the original broadcast. Lots of musical performances. Also features original commercials.

Great to see the entire show
Amazing to see that Ford would have bought an entire hour of network TV time and hired the biggest stars in the business to promote its new car. How did that work out, by the way?
Although it's a good kinescope, there's an original videotape of this show out there somewhere, see http://www.ev1.pair.com/edsel/edselshow3.html Wouldn't that be nice to have available?
